These are the photos of me experimenting with the macro settings on my new camera. 

These two were both done with flash to change the colors a bit.

These next 5 were taken using the pre-shot color fade option on the camera.  I believe the color picked here was yellowish, not green.


I think I could have spent all day taking more of these.

After walking around for a while, I came back to that spot and found this catkin on a rock nearby:


And now with the color fade on reddish-orange:

It looks like something found at the cellular level.  Or one of granny’s old, gaudy Christmas decorations.


These little purple flowers were right in the middle of the footpath.
